Wedding Photographer, Newbury, Berkshire
All weddings are special to me but Victoria and David's in particular stands out because of one simple but wonderful reason: it took place where my husband and I were married, too! It was such a pleasure to capture their wedding memories and be reminded of ours too. I'm so glad that Victoria and David found me and chose me to capture their day because it was certainly one of the most special weddings I have captured to date!
The Wedding Day
Victoria and David met during a night out in Newbury. When they were ready to tie the knot, they found me thanks to one of their wedding guests who recommended me and I'm so very thankful for that.
The ceremony took place at St. Nicholas, an ancient church dating back to the 15th century. Love is in the walls there! It's such a pretty and serene location, just perfect for a wedding. Once we were ready to start the celebrations, the guests headed over to the Garden room for Pimms and canapés. The wedding breakfast was served in the Castle Barn which was adorned with beautiful white floral arrangements and blue accents. Lots of details that worked well with the couple's theme navy and gold. The speeches were full of emotion and laughter, it was truly special. The cake was made by the bride, it was outstanding! Everyone had a wonderful time celebrating with the newlyweds. You'll see it all in the images below!
There are so many spots for great photo opportunities. For the couple portraits, we used the Victorian summer house and secret walled garden at Wasing Park and it was just lovely. Check out the highlights of the day in the recap below!
Victoria and David, a heartfelt thank you for allowing me to capture your wedding. It was a wonderful reminder of how wonderful it is to love and be loved.It’s always a joy to return to Wasing Park and I can’t wait for my next wedding there!

Happy February, friends! It's hard to believe that we're already in the second month of the year, but with these cold temperatures I'm glad the winter is going by quickly so that we can get to warmer temperatures as quickly as possible! On days like today I love to re-visit warmer weather weddings that will bring me back to lovely, sunny days. Today I have the pleasure of re-visiting Lisa and John and their beautiful June wedding.
Lisa and John met on a night out in Newbury where they were introduced by John's sister. I bet she loves taking credit for bringing these two lovebirds together - I know I would!
The Wedding Day
I had the honor of capturing Lisa and John's Tylney Hall Wedding on a gorgeous summer day in Hook last year. The sun shone so brightly that day! I'll admit, it was hot, but luckily, Lisa and John chose to have their ceremony indoors, in the baronial Tylney Suite. It was quite a stunning room with its high vaulted ceilings and a minstrels gallery. All the details made for the type of old world atmosphere that I love so much. Lisa and John have such wonderful taste, and you'll see it represented in the images below as you look through a recap of their day. I have to say, though, that my favorite part of the day was when I saw that Lisa and John had handwritten vows to read to each other during the ceremony. That's definitely not something I see very often and adds such a romantic heartfelt touch.
Lisa and John's guests continued the party at their drinks reception on the Italian Terrace and gardens. It was a magical setting for an elegant affair. Their wedding breakfast was served in the gorgeous Chestnut Suite. This wedding was so lovely, I think you'll wish you had been a guest there once you view the images below!
Lisa and John, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful wedding day. I hope you had a wonderful time during your month long road trip honeymoon in the U.S. Enjoy this recap of your wedding day!

As a Cotswolds Wedding Photographer, I have the opportunity to shoot at one of the most scenic locations in England. The Cotswolds is one of my favourite places in the country with quintessential villages of honey-coloured stone architecture, idyllic village scenes and rolling hills. It comes as no surprise that Hannah and Aaron chose this location for their pre wedding shoot, as it makes for the perfect backdrop for a romantic afternoon stroll. Well, as romantic as it can be with a photographer in tow!
Hannah and Aaron met at University and are such a fun couple. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them and sharing in their wedding day anticipation as they were still in the planning stages of their recent December wedding. I absolutely love the romance and warmth of Christmas weddings and theirs turned out spectacularly so I'm excited to share a peek at their wedding day soon right here on the blog!
During Hannah and Aaron's engagement session, we ventured into Bourton on the Water, known as the Venice of the Cotswolds. This town is as quaint as they get, and everyone always loves the charm of the village just as much as the views of River Windrush. My favorite part of the session was when I suggested that Hannah and Aaron get into the river with their wellies (only about a foot deep so no worries there!) and they happily obliged! I knew at that moment that I'd love working with them because fun, spontaneous couples are always a favourite around here. I really enjoyed getting to know this sweet couple more in a such lovely setting.

Richard & Kirsty's early summer wedding at the Elcot Park hotel was just lovely to shoot.
I started off with Kirsty's preparations in the gorgeous bridal suite (complete with 4 poster bed!), capturing all the little details and the atmosphere of the girls getting ready!
Before heading off to shoot Richard and the groomsmen in the beautiful grounds there.
This stylish 18th century Georgian manor house (former home of poet Percy Shelley) with lots of original features is set amongst 16 acres of Berkshire countryside. With sweeping views over the Kennet Valley.
